Reviews : Summer's Here! So Expect More Snow

Parts of the UK are bracing themselves for the return of snow this week - just as we begin British Summer Time.
The prospect of a 'barbecue Summer' will have to wait at least another week, with the Met Office issuing warnings of snow on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Northern England and southern Scotland are expected to be the worst affected areas, as well as Ireland and north Wales.


Snow has already begun falling in the far north of Scotland and temperatures have dropped below freezing in some areas.

On Tuesday, between 30 and 50mm of rain is being forecast, before the snow hits, where up to a foot of fresh, drifting snow could be seen on the higher ground.
Wednesday may bring more of the same, as eastern Scotland and NE England are braced for severe weather conditions.

Sky News weather presenter Lisa Burke says: "Snow is not uncommon at Easter time, and we're always cautious about the phrase 'extreme' weather, especially when talking about the west of Scotland or Ireland."

The Met Office recently dropped its long-term weather forecasts, after inaccurate predictions for last year's Summer and telling us the expect a "mild Winter".

Lisa Burke says it is very difficult to know whether this week's drop in temperatures is a sign of things to come.

"The Met Office will look into a range of different areas to get a feel for the weather ahead, but it is impossible to get the absolute detail right for the next few days and long-range forecasts cannot be known for more than a few days into the future."

With the Met Office unwilling to stick its neck out with a prediction for this summer, last week another forecaster, Positive Weather Solutions (PWS), said there is a chance of record temperatures in August.

PWS believes that as El Nino, which warms the Pacific Ocean, combines with the Atlantic Jet stream and high pressure from the Azores region, warm temperatures are likely to hit the British shores.
